  • How to export pictures from a sd card to lightroom and and external hard drive at the same time


    Is it possible that I can export my photos from my lightroom cameras sd card and an external hard drive at the same time so I have pictures original/master in both places

    Thanks in advance


    Hi Robert!

    Looks like you want to make a backup during import. If this is the case, you can designate a different location for a second copy when importing.

    1. Check the mark a second copy of box in the management of the files Panel and choose your external drive in the menu drop-down
    2. Then you set regular destination of Lightroom in the Destination panel.

    However, if you mean that you want in the foreground images in Lightroom, but have them physically located on an external drive, then all you need to do is choose this drive in the Destination panel. Lightroom Catalog can be on a different drive.

    I find it useful, however, to use the automatic backup in file management Panel in case.

  • How to copy a folder to an external hard drive with the same file on it and have it just add new files instead of replace all old already on there, as well as to add new?

    I want to copy a folder to an external hard drive with the file already on it and not having to replace all the files each time. I just want to click and drag the folder to the external hard drive and have it add new files I've added in the folder on my pc over time on the external hard drive. It's annoying to have to replace alllll the files each time.

    Thank you!

    A simple way is to use the second copy of Centered.com software. It is reasonably priced and will do exactly what you want. MS - MVP - Elephant Boy computers - don't panic!

  • I've just backed up with an external hard drive for the first time, but my profile with my folders for photos, documents, and movies are not there


    So, I finally got an external hard drive. I formatted for Mac (the device has been verified as being correct), and then he started to do a backup, which stated that a full backup would take 95GB. However, it only supported 19GB.  When I have my 'open' backup drive, I saw that only 'Macintosh HD' received support upward, not my user profile with all my folders containing documents, photos, movies, etc...

    I'm quite confused, because I thought that it would save.  I plan on Snow Leopard update to El Capitan, but if something is wrong or I don't like, I'm afraid that I won't be able to restore all my personal files - but only the applications that are on my Macintosh HD.

    Should I delete everything in my backup disk and try again?

    This is an image of what's inside my external hard drive:

  • Restore from an external hard drive on the same hard drive (uncompressed)

    I have an old backup of my files on external 500 GB MYBook I want to restore the hard drive even on the external 500 GB MyBook.  There are a lot of pictures and family videos.  How can I do this without restore on my internal hard drive which has very little space.


    1. what type of backup is? What application did you use to create this backup?
    2. What is the extension of this backup file? Is this backup a single file?
    2 have you tried to copy the files and images directly on the hard drive?
    If these files are simply saved in the hard disk, you can simply copy and paste the files on the disk. If it's a backup file provide the information identified above to help you further.

  • Where and how can I reinstall the external hard drive to the new HD to the computer?

    Original title: HD crashed.

My next question is, how and where can I reinstall external hard drive for the new HD to the computer? Should I send it to drive c or where? I'm not strong when it comes to computers.

    You will need to use a full copy of Windows XP.  Should be a sticker with the product key on the side of your desk or below if it is a laptop.

    Once you have this drive, you can reinstall Windows XP.  After you have installed all the software and drivers, you will be able to transfer all your data to the new HARD drive.

    If you don't have a copy of Windows XP, you can probably get a copy of the recovery from the manufacturing of computer media.  Just to provide the model and serial number and they should sent it.

  • Bought the new computer windows 10, itunes has changed location of support for external hard drive. The music does not appear in itunes.


    Changing the iTunes media folder location setting affects only where new additions to your library will be stored.  To use a disk external drive to store your library complete (and assuming that you have access to the original data of the library on an old computer) you must copy the iTunes folder, by default in C:\Users\username\Music, on the external drive - structure library and its records should be like this:

    The hold button SHIFT DOWN when you start iTunes and when you see this message:

    Click choose a library... then find and select the iTunes Library.itl in iTunes on your external drive folder.

    For more information, see user turingtest2 on make a library of portable split.  You must also acquire a 2nd external drive and allows create and maintain a backup your library.

  • Network external hard drive for media sharing on Xbox 360

    Hello, I just got a new external hard drive. I put a bunch of video files and music to share with my xbox 360. I use windows media player to make the media sharing. I got no problem with it for my regular hard drive in my computer. The first time I plugged my external hard drive to my computer and transferred the files added to the library, it worked fine and the xbox it would be. But after that I restarted my computer, my xbox can't see my external hard drive. I gave her a permanent using MMC drive letter and drive management. But for some reason any xbox will simply not show more. Any ideas? Thank you.

    I had the same problem

    1. Reset the wmp library
    2. Turn on file sharing for each folder on the external hard drive, including the player itself using the same settings.

    3. remove the Xbox 360 exceptions in your firewall

    4 Restore Xbox 360 to your firewall exceptions

    Thanks for posting your question on the Microsoft community.

    Thank you for details on the issue.

    You can restore backed up files lost, damaged, or accidentally modified versions. You also to restore files individual, groups of files, or all files that you have saved.

    If you are restoring files from a backup that was made on another computer, the files are restored in a folder under the user name that was used to create the backup. If the user names are different, you must navigate to the folder where the files are restored.

  • Why don't my raw in iphoto files transfer on an external hard drive in the form of successfully raw files?


    I use a mac in mid-2007, 10.7.5 mini system. I use iPhoto for my photo files only. I recently shot a family, the RAW files. When you try to transfer these RAW files and keep them in the form of RAW files on an external hard drive, the files themselves simply to the jpg. did someone knows how I can get these RAW files off my hard drive to an external hard drive, but keep them RAW and their original size? Thanks much for any guidance you may have. -bethsongs

    TO export RAW files you select them in iPhoto and export (menu, file == > export) using the type is an original option - see export from iPhoto for more details on the options

    as to get them off you primary drive - you can't, unless you remove them form iPhoto and empty iPhoto trash and trash system - iPHoto must always have access to the original to work

  • Denied access in writing to a disk external hard drive for Windows XP laptop.

    I have my laptop running on Windows XP. Recently I am facing difficulties to copy the files to my portable hard drive to an external hard drive (Intenso) - the error message "Unable to create the new folder - access denied".

    Surprisingly, the last time that I triedto copy some files was in December 2010 and everything worked fine. Even more surprising is that when I'm trying to copy files from my laptop to desktop hard disk Intenso I barely have problems at all! It works very well. Also, the operating system of my portable desktop is also WindowsXP.


    It seems that the hard drive is formatted with NTFS, and you must add the "everyone" to the root of the drive with ALL the account permissions and leaves all of the subfolders will inherit this setting.
